Hi UG!
I need to harmonize the solo to Somebody to Love (we have 2 guitarists playing it!), and was wondering if you've got any suggestions on how to do it!

Thanks in advance!
Tom

Find the key of the song
Lay out the notes of that key physically on paper
Choose what interval you want to harmonize by
apply to note


Example
Key C
C D E F G A B

Notes played in song C D C F
i want to harmonize in 4ths
F G F B are the harmonies

Hehe cheers.
I mean, I sort of understood that part, it's choosing which intervals go where, y'know?
I don't want the entire solo harmonized in 4ths, my guitar tutor said I should use 3rd + 6ths a fair bit.
The thing I really meant, and I should've been more clear, is how ot know which harmonized notes WHERE.
Or is it just a preference thing?

Diatonic 3rds is the way to go for Brian May stuff, there's usually at least 3 parts but the thirds will give you the core harmony. If you want to know which notes go where you need to look at the chords associated with the scale.
